Saving your life and patience

I am a big proponent of saving your life..
One of my instructors from the defense institute just posted part 4 of why a lot of self defense instructors are full of crap.
He has been talking about avoiding getting raped...if any one here wants some REAL tips, Free tips...head here.

You can save your life by fending off an attacker, dropping the weight,  finding a partner who doesn't diminish you...finding something you're are passionate about.

I am all about moving forward these days.

Every once in a while I drive by the house of a woman who was murdered by her husband.
There are days like today that I am feeling very impatient with my body.
I just want everything to be fixed.
I think this is a time of testing for me...
What will I do with the obstacles in my way.
I am not good at waiting.
But I have to wait.
If I don't wait, I will damage myself further.
And make my wait longer.
Much like dieting,  healing takes time.
If you try to get ahead of yourself..you simply end up frustrated.

I know what it's like to want the weight off NOW.
I still get that way.
But it went on a day at a time..
it will come off a day at a time.

It's just hard when you wake up one day and finally realize what it is you want..
and you have the impetus...the gumption.
The want to.
And you can't....yet.
So instead of preparing my body..
I need to be preparing my mind.
Do what you can, when you can.
then when the fetters are off..
You are already at full speed.
Chris out.

I think you nailed it with "Do what you can, when you can."
